Golden Gate Bridge

A truly beautiful American landmark. The entire area has breathtaking views of the bay. Definitely either walk or bike over the bridge (1.2 miles each way) and visit the welcome center for info, history & interactive displays. Note that you're walking on the side of a highway so there's fast traffic passing you which can be loud. Bring a jacket and hood/hat for the wind.
Breathtaking views. Super helpful team at the info building, with phone chargers!!! (No iPhone charger but you can use your own). And reasonably priced souvenirs which is nice. A bit more out the way than I expected... But SF is a lot bigger than I expected too!
It is just a beautiful beautiful place. I walked across the entire Bridge. You can park on either side and walk or bike across and back again or else have somebody pick you up on the other side. The only thing I did not like was that we drove across it twice on the weekend and received a bill for the toll of $16. Apparently they take pictures of your license plate 🙂 however I don't know what place you can have such a beautiful beautiful view of San Francisco and the bridge itself is quite beautiful. The whole Bay Area is just gorgeous.
Good place to visit and hangout with family and friends. The “Golden Gate” refers to the strait through which boats go to enter the Bay. It was originally named by U.S. army officer John Fremont in 1846.
The hills surroundings the bridge are themselves golden in color much of the year and when the sun is at the right angle it has an extremely beautiful golden glow. The bridge is simply the bridge that spans the Golden Gate Strait.
The Golden Gate bridge is regularly painted. Every state in the United States has a bridge maintenance and inspection plan.
When built, it was the bridge with the longest span bridge in the world till 1964. Now it is the ninth-longest suspension bridge in the world. It is famous for its extraordinary design.
One can swim, across the strait but completely at one's own risk. One can come in at Fort Baker on the North side or at Ft Point on the South. Both are rocky entries and you should visit and enter them during daylight.
Visiting the Golden Gate Bridge was a highlight of our San Francisco trip. The walk to the bridge was nice and breezy, yet still sunny. The view from the top of the bridge was breath taking. You can see the city from a really great angle. I didn't drive across...maybe next time I'll rent a car so I can do that!
